A Niagara Falls man who had his driver's license revoked earlier this year after being convicted of driving while intoxicated was charged with felony and aggravated DWI on Sunday in the City of Tonawanda, police said.

Freddy L. Barrett, 48, of Niagara Falls Boulevard, was pulled over at about 10:30 a.m. for driving the wrong way on Hill Street, City of Tonawanda police said. There were five cans of cold beer on his front seat, authorities said.

Barrett's license was suspended after he was convicted of DWI in Wheatfield in March, according to police.

A person is charged with aggravated DWI when police find their blood-alcohol content to be 0.18 percent or greater. Police also charged Barrett with first-degree aggravated unlicensed operation, as well as felony DWI for having a prior DWI conviction in the last 10 years.

Barrett was also charged with driving without a required ignition interlock device, drinking alcohol in a motor vehicle, as well as other vehicle and traffic violations, police said.
